Product details

Loestrin 1/20 has a dosage that’s slightly higher in estrogen than some choices, reducing the odds of spotting or breakthrough bleeding. At the same time, its relatively low estrogen levels will help prevent the chance of side effects. Once you determine how Loestrin 1/20 works for you, it’s a snap to switch to another type of pill to address any minor concerns you have and find the perfect pill for you! While chances are quite low, Loestrin 1/20 does come with potential risks, such as increased risk for blood clots, and shouldn’t be taken if you are breastfeeding or pregnant.

Loestrin 1/20 is what’s known as a combination-style birth control pill. There are many of these on the market, sold under different names and generic versions. Combination pills use a mixture of two hormones, estrogen and progestin, that simulate pregnancy in your body so that actual pregnancy won’t occur. At this time Nurx does not offer Loestrin 1/20, but our medical team can help you find the birth control that’s right for you.
